Dear Editor:

The Legion is again sponsoring the Canada Day Parade for the 2017 year. One hundred and fifty years.

We would like to have the support of all the Columbia Valley to help us celebrate the unity of our country.

Our theme this year, of course, is Canadas 150, so pick a year, a decade and enter.

We will form up at Pot Hole Park at 10:30 a.m. and start the parade at 11 a.m. through the main street of Invermere, to Kinsmen Beach. Dispersal will be at the east end parking lot, allowing adequate parking for participants families.

We hope you can help us spread the word so this Canada Day can be the best ever.

We will be open to the public on Canada Day, with youth able to attend the Legion.

Make this a family day and join in the festivities.

Jerry Meadows
